Voice actors Walter Zimmerman, Walter Covell, and Cindy Hardin Killavey give energetic performances in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s story “The Adventure of the Speckled Band” from the collection The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. The Scottish writer believed this to be his finest detective Holmes story. Heiress Helen Stoner engages Sherlock to investigate her twin sister’s strange and untimely death; she believes gypsies are responsible. The siblings have been living with their stepfather, Dr. Roylott, who once beat a servant to death while in India. Through the powers of deduction, the brilliant detective saves Helen’s life, while untangling the mystery.
